Walker Building 

VV hen the Stanley Steamer 
first alarmed the Gibson Girl 
as it puffed up Beacon Hill, 
Simmons College opened its 
doors to the first students. 

That the doors belonged to 
Tech only increased the enthu- 
siasm of those early Sally's. 
They dashed to chem lab in 
Walker Building, and crowded 
into Rogers for English, lan- 
guages, and history. Besides 
Tech's loan of these classrooms on Boylston Street, the college had 
quarters rented at 30 Huntington Avenue. Here Sally studied short- 
hand, typewriting, and accounting. Just a buggy-ride away, on St. 
Botolph Street, her library classes met, 
and a few doors down stood the 
dorm, Simmons Hall. Many a Har- 
vard beau came to call on Sally in 
the parlor of a Sunday afternoon. 
Her social evenings featured taffy- 
pulls, charades, and chaperones. John 
Steele was her Frank Sinatra, and 
her favorite song, "I'm Only a Bird

in a Gilded Cage." It was the first 
bright year of a new endeavor, and 
she found life exciting, however 
earnest. Sally worked hard, and 
she made history. 

When the school's enrollment in- 
creased at the end of that year, 
classes at Tech had to be discontin- 
ued. Simmons moved, book and 
bustle, to a new home at 739 Boylston Street. Here Sally invaded the 
three top floors for her science and typewriting classes. The library and 
college offices were also moved to Boylston Chambers. 

And so a new experiment in feminine education began. Because it 
filled a need, the venture prospered, and soon Simmons was again 
bursting its rented seams. A search began for land on which to build 
permanent quarters. After much dis- 
cussion, the Corporation decided on 
a swampy, duck-inhabited section of 
the Back Bay. And here it was that 
a resplendent new Simmons arose 
from the marshland. Sally packed up 
once more and moved into the build- 
ing at 300 the Fenway that we know 
as the Simmons of today.

_L he time has come," the walrus said, 
"to speak of many things." And we're 
speaking, not of cabbages and kings, 
but of many new buildings. To us, 
New Library these buildings represent the pioneer 

spirit that is part of our fifty-year tradition, and has kept our college 
ahead in professional education. We see in them, too, an opportunity to 
enrich the Simmons life we 
have known, and which we 
picture here in our yearbook. 
EDUCATION-some day 
soon, our new library will go 
up on the corner next to our 
Simmons. It will mean more 

Social and Health Center 

reading and reference rooms, and better-than-ever training for student 
librarians. But best of all, the library represents a step forward in the 
education of all Simmons students. 

COOPERATION-we'll have a 

real Fenway campus, too, when the 
Social and Health Center is erected. 
All clubs and classes will meet there 
in their own rooms. We hope for a 
swimming pool and a dance studio 


The Simmons of today 

to spur interest in the sports we 
lack now. A chapel and Little 
Theater will complete the picture 
so that all students can work to- 
gether in active cooperation. 

Brookline Avenue, too, we hope 
to see much building. First on the 
list is the new Refectory, and the 
present one will serve as a ball- 
room and party spot. New dorms, 

too, will mean more room for fun, making life at Simmons pleasant in 
work and play. 

CLASSES — the Science building will complete the Fenway campus, 
providing new labs and equipment for technical courses, and more breath- 
ing room for all classes at number 300. When all these plans materialize, 
as they soon must, we hope to 
see a modern college, united 
in faith and in purpose. We, 
the class of '48, wish success 
to the classes of the future as 
we dedicate our Microcosm to 
a "New Simmons." science Bunding

liberal arts and professional training 
join hands at Simmons to educate in the modern 
manner, and prepare us for our work after graduation. 
Whatever our school, we will always be grateful to the 
college that has given us a sound and thorough design 
for living. 

Since we gain much of our knowledge from books, 
a good library forms the basis of our learning. When 
the new library materializes, as it soon must, Simmons 
will offer even better means of education to the classes 
of the future. 

President Bancroft Beatley 

President Bancroft Beatley acts as co-ordinator of 
the administration, faculty, and student body. He 
shows forethought and geniality in dealing with 
undergraduates and alumnae, and has been tire- 
less in his efforts to build a better Simmons. The 
president occasionally takes time out to pursue his 
musical interests or to tinker with his model rail- 
road. The class of '48 wishes the president the 
greatest success in his position as head of a New 

Professor J. Garton Needham, Mr. Beatley's 
right-hand man, carries on the duties of Vice-Presi- 
dent of the College. Students know him both as a 
capable executive and as one of their favorite psy- 
chology professors. 

In a receiving line or behind her desk, Jane 
Louise Mesick, Dean of Simmons, shows a sincere 
interest in each student. Her sympathy, under- 
standing, and warm personality make Dean Mesick 
counselor and friend to everyone at Simmons.

Undergrads and alumnae turn to this lady of per-

Freshmen spend approximately one-half of their 
school time in Library C on the ground floor of the 
college building. Upperclassmen climb skyward to 
study in Libraries A and B on the fourth floor. The 
book collection of the Simmons library totals 98,293 
volumes, including the latest periodicals on profes- 
sional subjects. Director of the Library is Miss 
Alice L. Hopkins, who shares the limitless knowl- 
edge of her profession by directing the students' 
course of reading. 

Class-cutting culprits and conscientious supply- 
buyers have made browsing in the Bookstore a 
traditional activity at Simmons. Contrary to what 
its name implies, the Bookstore sells everything 
from the Manual of General Biology to fancy bottles of 
Chanel No. 5. The store, under the management of 
Mrs. Helen M. Bradstreet, supplies the student with 
essential and luxury articles. On the shelves and 
counters are colorful displays of ribbons, wrapping 
paper, cosmetics, and knick-knacks of copper, 
china, and wood. 

Delectable odors permeate the corridors and

When the apple-a-day treatment proves ineffec-

of the students. 

Miss Marie LaPorte, better known as the Curator 
of Lost Articles, is said to have collected enough

Simmons girls really mean it when they say that 
a girl's best friend is her prof. Furthermore, they 
have proved that there is such a thing as friendly 
relations between the students and their instructors. 

Throughout the year, Stu-G sponsored a series of 
informal teas, where the students and the faculty 
mingled and chatted over their teacups. Open 
meetings, Field Day, and Simmons Night at Pops 
further testify to the fact that students do get along 
fine with their professors. 

The faculty is interested in progress and ideas of 
the students too. Several clubs and organizations at 
Simmons include faculty names on their active 
membership lists. 

This genial relationship extends even to the 
classroom. Students are free at any time to discuss 
with their teachers any personal difficulties en- 
countered in their courses of study. 

More and more, both student and faculty prob- 
lems are being solved through the friendly function- 
ing of the two groups.

Business school girls are those students whose 
fingernails are kept short and clipped, and who are 
weighted down with reams of accounting sheets. 
They are the girls whose education calls for pro- 
ficiency in both cultural and professional subjects. 
The program of the School of Business is designed 
to enable them to qualify for executive-secretarial 
and administrative positions in the business world. 

The student may prepare for work in advertising, 
personnel, accounting, office management, and 
inter-American relations. Or she may train for 
medical and scientific secretarial work. During her 
four years at Simmons, the student takes specialized 
courses in her chosen field, and also studies subjects 
closely related to her particular interests. 

For two weeks in the spring, she takes time out 
from the business classroom to do practice work, 
where she is given the chance to use her individual 

A new course, Business 24, was offered for the

functions in our economic system, and also helps

and consumer business activities. A specialized one- 
year program is offered for graduates of liberal arts 
colleges who desire a thorough preparation for 
careers in commercial fields. 

Scribunal, official organization of the School of 
Business, celebrated its tenth anniversary this year. 
The club has done much to promote the elements 
of fun and friendship between the student body and 
the faculty. 

Scribunal has been working to build up its mem- 
bership to one hundred if possible. In order to en- 
gage the interest of school members in their club, 
officers prepared special meetings, teas, and talks 
which were held periodically during the year. In 
February, "Take a Letter, Please," a satirical 
movie, was shown. The March meeting was held 
jointly with the English, Ellen Richards, and Home 
Ec Clubs. "The New Look and How It Affects the 
Career Girl's Wardrobe" was the theme of a lecture 
given by Ruth Mugglebee, Fashion Editor of the 
Boston American.

Under this professional training, English majors 
spend their last two years at Simmons struggling 
with the problems of copyfitting, proofreading, and 
writing copy. 

During the four-year program of the present 
graduating class, new courses have been added to 
increase the opportunities for specialization in the 
School of English: "Industrial Writing and Edit- 
ing," and "Children's Books and Periodicals." 
. Each senior has an opportunity to work on at 
least one issue of the Simmons Review and during the 
process really gets the feel of meeting the ever- 
present "deadline." This practical experience calls 
into play all the principles that the girls learned in 
the classes of Mr. Valz, Mr. Bosworth, Mr. Fessen- 
den, and Mr. Morang. 

The English Club, not specifically a club for 
English School students, opens its activities to the 
whole College and offers a program of interesting 
speakers, book reviews, and discussions.

What's cookin'? In the School of Home Eco- 
nomics, that's a challenge that leads to conquest in 
such fields as textiles, food research, nutrition, 
teaching, and dietetics. 

During her first two years, the student takes 
courses in home ec and science which form a basis 
for her professional work. 

The study of foods and nutrition leads to posi- 
tions in dietetics, institutional management, public 
health nutrition, and research. The textile field is 
open to those students who wish to go into labs or 
manufacturing plants. This program also includes 
facilities for the student whose interest lies in dress 
design and related creative work. 

The course in home management requires the 
student to spend eight weeks at Pilgrim House on 
campus, where she gains wide practical experience 
in the science and art of homemaking. A course in 
child development affords an opportunity to ob- 
serve child behavior at the nursery school. 

Girls who wish to teach home economics take 
courses in education combined with a program 
which gives a broad general knowledge of the field. 
During her senior year, the student spends one day

This year the School of Home Economics offered 
several new courses in cooking, sewing, and home 
decorating. These courses were specially designed 
for girls in other schools at Simmons. 

During their regular meetings every month, 
Home Ec Club members raised money through a 
Towle silver display, sandwich sales, and catering. 

For three days in October, Ruth Thompson,

Room 318 is the mental gymnasium where most 
seniors in the School of Library Science put to 
practical use such courses as Introduction to Li- 
brarianship, Reference, Book Selection, Catalogu- 
ing, and Library Organization and Administration. 
Each student has her own desk at which she handles 
practical library exercises with the assurance of a 
professional librarian. 

The program of the school enables the student to 
deal with general problems in library science, and 
at the same time allows her to concentrate on 
specific studies in her chosen field. 

After a basic general education for the first three 
years, the student spends her senior and graduate 
years in a concentrated program of technical train- 
ing. Two weeks of field work in libraries of recog- 
nized standing is required before graduation. 

The many fields open to the library school gradu- 
ate are included in four general categories — service 
in public, college, and university libraries; chil- 
dren's library work; technical processes; and special 
library service. Moreover, graduates are filling 
positions in business firms, newspaper and maga- 
zine offices, insurance and advertising establish-

Neat, efficient, and well-trained — that's a Sim- 
mons nurse! Students who enter the Simmons Col- 
lege School of Nursing acquire the knowledge and 
skills requisite for high quality performance in the 
various fields of professional nursing. 

Freshmen enroll in N-i, a five-year program 
leading to a Bachelor of Science degree, a diploma 
in nursing, and eligibility for state examinations to 
become registered nurses. 

The School of Nursing offers a highly diversified 
program that combines scientific, liberal, and pro- 
fessional courses. 

During the summer sessions of the first two years, 
prospective nurses spend six weeks at Massachu- 
setts General Hospital and the Peter Bent Brigham 
Hospital, attending classes on the principles and 
history of nursing. 

The middle of the junior year finds the nurses 
ready for their two full years of hospital experience. 
Here Simmons girls get a taste of all phases of the 
nursing world. This hospital training is divided into 
specific fields; three months are spent in pediatric 
nursing at the Children's Hospital, three months in 
obstetric work at the Boston Lying-in, and three

months in psychiatric training at McLean Hos- 

After this basic training, the nurses, now depend- 
able individuals, return to the college building for a 
final half-year of special courses in public health 
nursing, in affiliation with the Boston Visiting 
Nurse Association. 

Lyndon McCarroll, director of the School of 
Nursing, announced two new practices: "In Janu- 
ary, the juniors received their caps before beginning 
their two-year hospital affiliation; and a Senior Tea 
was given in May at which the seniors were pre- 
sented with the pin of the Simmons College School 
of Nursing to complete the graduate uniforms." 

For the February '48 semester, "Nursing Educa- 
tion 27" (ward administration) was initiated. In 
the next school year, a survey of the nursing field 
will be given for the benefit of graduate nurses 
studying at Simmons. 

Nursing students are united by the Anne Strong 
Nursing Club. Each month this club sponsors meet- 
ings featuring speakers from the many fields of 
nursing. During social hours, girls get together to 
compare "nursing notes."

Some professions are entered into only after the 
Bachelor of Science degree has been received and 
graduate work in the field has been done. The stu- 
dent who realizes her professional interest may be 
exercised only after more than four years of college 
enrolls in the School of Preprofessional Studies. 

The School of Preprofessional Studies offers a 
basic four-year program which is designed to pre- 
pare the "prepro" girl for graduate work. This 
basic undergraduate program lays a firm founda- 
tion for the student's future professional training, 
and while it emphasizes a study of cultural sub- 
jects, it also allows the student to place emphasis 
on subjects in her chosen field. 

There are three programs within the preprofes- 
sional school which lead to advanced work. 

The student who wishes to prepare for a school 
of library science concentrates on subjects which 
give a broad general background of liberal arts 
subjects, such as economics, English, psychology, 
and sociology. A specified number of electives in the 
library science field are chosen by the student under 
the direction of Dr. Harrison L. Harley, director of 
the school.

The prepro girl may choose to prepare for work 
in the field of medicine. This course leads to occu- 
pation in the closely allied professions of dentistry 
or nursing. The student may also concentrate on oc- 
cupational therapy or physiotherapy. 

Some students follow a four-year course with an 
eye to the field of social work. These girls have in 
mind the Simmons School of Social Work or other 
graduate schools throughout the country. The fu- 
ture social worker must have an understanding of 
basic human problems, and must also have certain 
abilities with which she may solve such problems. 
Her background, therefore, must be broad enough 
to equip her both with general knowledge and in- 
tensive professional training. English, economics, 
history, psychology, government, and sociology are 
emphasized. .Social statistics is required in the 
fourth year, besides an introductory course in social 
work which includes a study of the history and cur- 
rent status of social institutions. Whether the stu- 
dent plans to concentrate on medical or civic social 
work, these qualifications are essential for all girls 
who desire a career in the field.

"Prince Girl" is synonymous with "smart," 
"efficient," and "pleasant!" These are only a few 
of the qualities that make a student of the Prince 
School of Retailing unique in her field. Besides 
being a perfect example of the well-groomed and 
fashionable young lady, she is thoroughly trained in 
the merchandising, promotional, personnel, and 
management vocations. 

The course of study in retailing is such that it 
enables the student to observe, and at the same time 
take part in a practical application of the knowledge 
and theory she is taught in class. Before beginning 
the intensive phase of her professional education, a 
Prince girl spends the first two years at the main 
college building on the Fenway, where her program 
consists of English, economics, psychology, typing, 
history, government, and sociology. With this sub- 
stantial background, the student then goes to the 
Prince School of Retailing on Commonwealth 
Avenue for study of the interrelation of store func- 
tions, management, publicity, and control. 

The highlights in the retail curriculum are the 
periods spent doing field work in department or 
specialty stores. The administration arranges the 
field work positions so that they coincide as nearly

as possible with the students' class work. Through 
actual employment, they acquire insight into opera- 
tions behind the scenes in department stores. 

In addition to her part-time experience, the stu- 
dent is assigned to a full-time position for a six-week 
period preceding Christmas. 

The senior year completes retailing training, and 
again the courses are combined with field work. 
Seniors are paid regular salaries while they act as 
junior executives in various stores. 

The degree of Bachelor of Science which is con- 
ferred at the end of the four-year period is evidence 
of the graduate's eligibility for an executive position 
in a retail store as buyer or personnel director, or 
for a job as teacher or supervisor of retailing in a 
college or secondary school. 

These are goals certainly worthy of the student's 
interest and endeavor, as any Prince girl will read- 
ily affirm. The only requirements for entrance to 
the school are "good health, common sense, and

Acid-eaten sweaters and skirts, pink, blue, and 
green fingers, burned thumbs — these are marks 
which betray the girl in the science school. Whether 
specializing in biology, chemistry, physics, or physi- 
cal therapy, she may be found at almost any time in 
one of the labs on the second floor. Her type of 
work, and her thorough preparation for it, asssure 
the science student an excellent position in her field 
before and after graduation. 

The program of the School of Science opens to 
the student many interesting and diverse fields. 
After graduation, she may work as a technician in a 
hospital, assist a private physician, or be employed 
by the city and state health departments. Some 
students prepare for work in private and industrial 
research laboratories as analysts and research as- 
sistants. Some enter the educational field as teach- 
ers of science and mathematics. In answer to an in- 
creasing demand, a new program in physical 
therapy was introduced this year. 

In affiliation with the Massachusetts Eye and 
Ear Infirmary, the School of Science will offer a 
course in orthoptics in the fall. Students will learn

A graduate course in clinical laboratory tech- 
niques or in public health laboratory procedures, 
including work in the preparation of vaccines and 
anti-toxins, is available to a limited number of stu- 
dents who are best qualified for advanced work. 
Either course leads to a diploma. 

Ellen Richards, the student club of the science 
school, aims to bring together the girls in the four 
fields of science — biology, chemistry, physics, and 
physical therapy — so they may gain new informa- 
tion in all aspects of science. 

The club's initiation party for sophomores in the 
school proved without doubt that science majors 
can enjoy themselves outside of the lab. In order 
to keep the students informed on the latest scientific 
developments, and to present various opinions on 
controversial issues, speakers were invited to address 
the club's regular meetings held on the fourth 
Thursday of each month in the lounge. 

Ellen Richards and Scribunal staged their joint

Freshman year, all incoming students are intro-

System. Every new student is made familiar with 
the Honor Code, the basis for the successful opera- 
tion of Stu-G. The Honor Code is not an ideal, for 
its success has been proven. 

Since each underclassman is a potential leader of 
Stu-G, every student is trained during her first 
three years by taking part in Stu-G functions. The 
freshman, sophomore, and junior classes elect from 
their numbers two representatives to represent 
them on Council. 

Presiding over the Council is the President of 
Stu-G and five senior officers — the Vice-President, 
the Chairman of Honor Board, the Chairman of 
Social Activities, the Assistant Vice-President, and

on campus — to coordinate activities and to investi-

tion for students who disregard the Honor Code in 
the classroom and during exams. They also investi- 
gate serious offenses passed on by Dorm Board.

In October, in the largest election ever held at 
Simmons, students voted to join NSA, an organ- 
ization supported by student governments through- 
out the country. The Simmons Stu-G feels that by 
taking part in the activities of the National Stu- 
dents' Association we will be helping other col- 
leges to reach the goals that we at Simmons have 
already realized. 

The program and significance of NSA were 
discussed on a radio program on February 5. Jean 
Stocks, former President of Student Government, 
represented Simmons. Participating in the program 
were Harvard, Radcliffe, M.I.T., Northeastern, 
Emmanuel, and Boston University. Again on Feb- 
ruary 19, Simmons took part in a radio program 
with other representatives of Boston Colleges. At 
this Stu-G clinic, "Problems of Student Govern- 
ment and its Organization in Greater Boston Col-

dent pointed out specific examples of how our Stu- 
dent Government functions at Simmons and with 
what a high degree of success.

Simmons was a part of the NSA from its very in- 
ception. In December, 1946, Student Government 
received an invitation to send two delegates to a 
conference of college students held at the Univer- 
sity of Chicago. This conference was the beginning 
of a series of events which led to the formation of 
the National Student Association, and to Simmons' 
affiliation with it. 

Simmons students Esther Maletz and Patricia 
Murphy attended the constitutional convention at 
the University of Wisconsin in September, 1947, 
and upon returning to school, embarked upon a 
campaign to educate Simmons students as to the 
advantages and disadvantages of joining the NSA. 
News articles every week explained the functions 
and structure of NSA. In October, Thomas Mac- 
Donald of Suffolk University spoke at an NSA 
assembly. During NSA week from November 1 7 to 
21, Larry Jaffa of Harvard, regional chairman of 
the NSA, spoke at a Stu-G open meeting; News 
devoted most of that week's issue to NSA; and 
a Simmons representative spoke at special house 
meetings each evening. This intensive campaign 
culminated in a three-day election at which stu- 
dents were asked the question: Shall Simmons join 
the NSA? They answered yes — 723 to 183 — the 
largest number of votes in any student election in 
the history of Simmons College.

Simmons NSA was then put on a more perma- 
nent basis. The senior representative was awarded 
a seat on Stu-G Council as an ex-officio member. 
Two representatives were elected from each class 
to the new NSA committee. NSA representatives 
attended regional meetings at Mt. Holyoke and 
B.U.; they conducted a cost-of-living survey on 
campus, and sponsored a regional forum on Activ- 
ities of NSA to which representatives from all col- 
leges were invited. Under their sponsorship, a 
regional survey on Academic Freedom and Student 
Rights was initiated, and questionnaires on the 
subject were sent to colleges all over New England. 
Four representatives from Simmons Stu-G attended 
a NSA-sponsored conference of Stu-G representa- 
tives in February, and Elsie Mainwaring spoke for 
Simmons students at an all-college opposition to the

The NSA is a non-partisan, non-political college 
student organization authorized and supported by 

the official student governing bodies of American 
colleges. It represents the community of interests of 
U.S. students, and works on campus, regional, and 
national levels to promote friendlier and closer rela- 
tions among students at home and abroad. Among 
its aims are the development of more independent 
and democratic student governments and news- 

NSA hopes to broaden the basis of the college 
community by stimulating scholarships and other 
aids to students. It proclaims the right of students 
to engage independently in research, to form clubs, 
and to participate freely in off-campus activities. 
It is working to eliminate discrimination based 
upon race, religion, or economic circumstances, in 
both college admissions and use of facilities. NSA 
aims to improve curricula by means of student 
course-evaluation, and supports the principle of 
academic freedom of professors. 

Simmons NSA got off to a good start in its first 
year on campus. The future promises increased 
activities and increased benefits.

Activities of all clubs and classes at Simmons are 
supervised by Inter-Club Council and its twenty- 
eight members. ICC also acts as a kind of clearing 
house where organizations within the college discuss 
freely any problems which arise during the year. 
Through its duties as coordinator of club activities, 
ICC serves to further strengthen and unify clubs 
and classes. 

This year ICC has concentrated upon the pro- 
motion of religious good-will and understanding. 
Dr. Gale, Professor of Religion at Wellesley College, 
was the first speaker at a series of inter-religious 
meetings in the lounge. The lectures which followed 
featured a Catholic and a Jewish clergyman. 
Through such a religious program ICC hopes to 
encourage the support of all students in reaching its 
ultimate goal — a new chapel on campus. 

In the spring, ICC sponsored an all-college week- 
end when students invited family and friends to 
Spring Production and News Dance. 

The formation of three new organizations at 
Simmons represents the crystallization of new ideas. 

An organization which concentrates on arriving 
at an understanding of world problems, namely 
the International Relations Council, was the first 
new club to appear in 1947 and 1948. Last year, a 
group of students met to discuss current interna- 
tional problems. Several informal meetings were 


Inter-Club Council, 
hub of the clubs 

held at which Simmons students from Greece, 
Norway, and France spoke. Miss Sara Landau, 
formerly of the Economics Department at the col- 
lege, encouraged the formation of an International 
Relations Council. In the early fall of 1947, students 
who attended the earlier meetings got together to 
write a constitution for IRC. 

Club meetings featured foreign student speakers 
who discussed their native cultures, their countries' 
backgrounds, and current political and economic

On November 16, speaker Florence Luscomb of 
the Civil Liberties Union was a guest of PCA. On 
December 1 1 , the organization held an open meet-

Salerno, president of the Massachusetts CIO spoke 
on the Taft-Hartley Law as it affects labor. On Feb-

spoke on Universal Military Training. 

PCA members have been busy drawing up and 
circulating petitions. They supported Henry Wal-

In March, 1 947, a group of students began pro- 

ceedings toward the formation of the Eastern 
Orthodox Club. After the regular four months' 
probation period, Stu-G passed its constitution, and 
in November, the club became an official Simmons 

Its purpose is to seek more knowledge of the 
Orthodox faith, and to bring the different nation- 
alities of the faith together in an educational and 
social unit. 

On December 10, Father Upson gave an illus- 
trated lecture on the Holy Liturgy of the Orthodox 
Church. Members enjoyed a party-dance with the

success of the get-together resulted in the Simmons 
chapter's playing hostess to M.I.T. later in the year. 

On January 28, the Boston University Orthodox 
Club entertained Simmons students at a mass meet- 
ing. In February, Simmons girls invited students 
from near-by colleges to attend the Cambridge 
Orthodox Church, where Father Theodorides spoke 
on "The Orthodox Church of American and

schedule of activities. During the past year, Hillel's 
monthly meetings, featuring speakers, recitals, 
panel discussions and inter-faith programs, have 
been supplemented by tea dances, a bridge party, 
picnic, theater party, Hillel-Tufts weekend, and 
Guest Banquet. 

This year, all the Hillels of Greater Boston have 
joined together to sponsor Friday evening services 
each month as well as monthly dances. 

IZFA, the Inter-Collegiate Zionist Federation of 
America, functions in conjunction with the over-all 
Hillel program. This group is devoted to the fur- 
therance of Zionism and the spirit of Palestine.

The purpose of the Christian Science Organiza- 
tion is to enlighten the college community by pre- 
senting the truth about Christian Science as taught 
in the Bible and in Science and Health. The success 
of this program has been proved by the active 
participation of club members this year in the 
furtherance of their aims. 

On September 24, a welcoming tea for all stu- 
dents initiated club activities. On October 22, 
members held a Dutch-treat supper at Salma- 
gundi's, after which they attended a Wednesday 
evening meeting at the First Church of Christ, Sci- 
entist, in Boston. 

The activities of the organization have been out- 
standing in that they have expanded to include 
other colleges in and around Boston. In November, 
the Simmons chapter was present at a reception 
of the Wellesley College Christian Science Organ- 
ization, and a month later was a guest of M.I.T. 
In return, Simmons played hostess by sponsoring 
meetings in the college building. 

On April 29, a lecture on Christian Science was 
given by Evelyn Heywood, a member of the Board 
of Lectureship of the Mother Church, First Church 
of Christ, Scientist, Boston.

The Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship has 
promoted the Christian faith by providing its 
members with increased knowledge of the Bible. 
The Simmons I.V.C.F. was founded to give Chris- 
tian girls the opportunity to continue their Bible 
study at weekly meetings. 

In November, Dr. Archer spoke on the "Princi- 
ples of the Christian Faith;" Dr. F. Kiss, professor 
of anatomy at the University of Budapest, spoke 
on "Religious Life and Student Work in the 
Danubian States." On January 16, C. Stacey 
Woods, head of I.V.C.F. internationally, lectured 
at a meeting of all Boston chapters at Gordon 
Divinity School. A lecture by Dr. T. Norton 
Sterrett of the Student Foreign Missions Fellowship 
was given to the same group on February 20. 

A weekend conference was held in May with 
B.U., Harvard, M.I.T., Wellesley, and North- 

Many club members are planning to attend the 
New England and New York State Conference at

month during the summer.

The first Newman Club was established at the 
University of Pennsylvania in 1839. Today there 
are over 350 clubs all over the country, which 
are joined to form the Newman Club Federation. 

At Simmons, the Newman Club brings together 
all Catholic girls and provides for their spiritual 
and social direction. Besides having the largest 
membership of any club in the college, Newman 
functions both as a unit and in conjunction with 
the Newman Club Federation. 

Every third Tuesday of each month Father Rus- 
sell Ryan, chaplain, spoke in the lounge. Twice last 
year, in the spring and fall, the Simmons chapter 
held joint meetings and dances with M.I.T., the 
University of Massachusetts at Fort Devens, and 
Northeastern. A Mother-and-Daughter Commun- 
ion Breakfast was held on the first Sunday in May 
on Mothers' Day, when new officers were installed. 

Under the direction of the Federation, weekly 
dances were held at the Hotel Continental on 
Friday nights; and every first and third Saturday 
evening of each month members attended a dance 
at the Boston City Club.

The Dramatic Club, one of our most active organi- 
zations, has just finished an eventful year. 

It is the purpose of the club to arouse interest in 
the legitimate stage, and to provide worthwhile 
entertainment for the student body. The club made 
its first public appearance this year on December 5, 
at Competitives. By a close margin, the junior class 
walked away with the first prize — a silver loving 

At the annual Christmas pageant, the Dramatic 
Club presented the Nativity in which Priscilla 
White was featured as the Madonna. 

At a meeting on February 3, club members chose 
Blithe Spirit as the play to be presented at the annual 
Spring Production on April 23 and 24. The play, 
directed by Harlan F. Grant of the New England 
Conservatory, was a great success as a result of wise 
casting and wise direction. 

Perhaps the biggest event of the year was the 
club's sponsorship of the Harvard Dramatic Club's 
presentation of Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, at 
Boys' Latin School.

A small ad for the Simmons Review or an attractive 
display for an all-college bridge party — it makes no 
difference. The Poster Committee can do the trick. 

Through the committee's dynamic layouts, 
Simmons girls are informed and reminded of all 
approaching activities — teas, dances, and assem- 

The Poster Committee is composed of a group of 
twelve girls who, for a small fee, make posters to 
publicize any college or club event. The profits in 
the treasury at the end of the year are divided 
among the members in proportion to the number 
of posters each girl has made. 

Early in December, a poster contest was held, 
displaying the work of the committee. Phyllis Gray, 
'48, was given first prize by faculty judges for her 
poster advertising the Hillel bridge party. Another 
contest was held in the spring when all posters made 
during the year were put on display and judged by 
the student body. 

Even though they're busy dreaming up ideas 
most of the time, members took time out to enjoy 
their annual Dutch-Treat Supper.

Any girl interested in things literary will find 
sympathy and/or admiration if she makes herself a 
member of the English Club, an organization which 
thrives on the exploration of the cultural and aes- 
thetic interests of Boston. Under the direction of 
Dr. Wylie Sypher, the thirty-nine members discuss 
and criticize current plays, novels, ballets, and all 
subjects related to the arts. 

English Club girls are no armchair commenta- 
tors. They become acquainted with current literary 
and artistic trends by attending theater parties and 
examining bulletin reports on plays and exhibits.

Academy was founded in 191 9 as an organiza- 
tion which aimed at the promotion and under- 
standing of the arts. Membership was on the basis 
of proficiency in the non-professional subjects. Re- 
quirements for admission were later changed to 
include proficiency in both professional and non- 
professional subjects. In 1943, Academy officially 
became the Simmons honor society. 

This year Academy held a formal reception for 
new members in November in Evans Hall. Dan H. 
Fenn Jr., Assistant Dean of Freshmen at Harvard 
and member of the United Nations Association, 
spoke on world government. Students and faculty 
mingled in a friendly atmosphere where each mem- 
ber of Academy acted as hostess to a member of the 
faculty. The traditional theater and supper party 
in the spring, besides regular meetings, were held 
during the year. 

Academy is the only club whose members are 
selected on the basis of scholarship. Qualifications 
for Academy are a higher than B average for at 
least two years, and fifty quality points the year 
before election.

WtUtesti, an "levieui" 

That slick magazine bearing all the earmarks of 
a professional publication is the new Simmons Re- 

The Review has appeared four times during the 
past year. Because it has absorbed three former 
publications — the old Simmons Review, The Prince 
Alumnae News, and the undergraduates' Fen Ways, 
the copy is specially written to be of interest to 
undergrads, alumnae, and all who have an interest 
in observing the development of the college. 

The editorial staff is headed by Miss Dorothy 
Williams, professional managing editor and Sim- 
mons alumna. The advisory board is made up of 
a representative of the Alumnae Association, an 
undergraduate appointed each year by Student 
Government, and a college representative named 
by the college president. This year the board in- 
cluded Miss Helen Deacon, Jane Bond, '49, and 
Miss Sigrid Edge. All seniors in the English School 
gain practical experience by working on at least 
one issue of the Review. 

The circulation goal has been set at 12,000 copies, 
and the degree of success of the Simmons Review will 
be measured by the response it receives from its 
readers. Ultimately the aim of the magazine is to 
draw together the many friends of the college, to 
make students, alumnae, and faculty realize their 
common objective — a new and better Simmons.

Every day is News day for the staff of the Simmons 
News. And everything that goes on around the col- 
lege is meat for these reporters with a nose for news. 
From Thursday to Thursday events are covered. 
Tuesday is the final deadline and all stories are 
passed in to the editors. The Technical Staff edits 
and writes headlines for the copy which is sent to the 
Crimson Press Tuesday afternoons. On Wednesday 
this same staff goes over to Cambridge, "proves" 
the galleys, and "makes-up. "Much of this work is 
real practical application for the girls in the English 
school. It wouldn't be Thursday to Simmons girls 
without being able to pick up their copies of News 
after seventh hour. 

The editors this year have placed more emphasis 
on college events than ever before. "School news 
first" could be the motto of the News staff, yet stu- 
dents get coverage of world events, current political 
questions, and the latest in plays, books, and mov- 
ies. The columns by Virginia Nowell, Barbara Jop- 
ling, and Connie Garvey have brought many of the 
more pertinent controversial subjects to the closer 
attention of Simmons girls. Wage-price increases,

in Palestine have been discussed pro and con in 
these two columns. The witty and often scathing 
reviews of Esther Maletz have become a favorite in 
News. This year the paper has done much to pub- 
licize N.S.A. activities at Simmons, and has fea- 
tured columns answering the questions that have 
arisen on organization and purpose. The students 
are kept informed of all happenings from current 
administrative action to where their classmates 
spent the weekend. 

The Simmons News is one of the few college week- 
lies in the country which is not under the control of 
either faculty or administration. The only censor- 
ship imposed is the editors' standards of good judg- 
ment. Because it has tried to represent the voice of 
the majority, News is the voice of the student body. 
The paper co-operates closely with Stu-G and clubs 
and classes, and encourages open letters by the 

The constant vigilance and interest of the staff 
in school affairs, plus thorough and accurate cover- 
age of school events are perhaps the reason for the 
high quality of the Simmons News.

One day in May, 

The second annual Mic banquet on May i , 1 947, 
marked the beginning of a year's work on the 1948 
issue of Microcosm. 

The idea for a theme for the '48 Mic came with 
the news of the Fiftieth Anniversary Appeal. To 
dedicate the book to a new Simmons seemed the 
natural thing to do. 

During the summer Barbara Black, Editor-in- 
Chief, planned layouts to convey the book's modern 
tone. Mr. Dino Valz, technical advisor to the staff, 
gave much time and valuable assistance in plan- 
ning, and later in producing the book. Meanwhile 
Marie Ochs, Publicity Manager, flooded the mails 
with letters to alums and members of the new fresh- 
man class, stressing the fact that Mic is a valuable 
volume in any library. Printing and engraving 
contracts were signed, and in September, the whole 
staff got to work in earnest to carry out their indi- 
vidual duties. 

Lorrie Lundeberg, Circulation Manager, took 
over Hall Table fifth hour every Tuesday. Here 
budget payments were made by the students, and 
dollars were put on the line for reserved copies.

Velma Thompson balanced the budget, as man- 
ager Joan Macdonald planned her advertising 
campaign. On the assets side were the profits of the 
Mic Dance, of which Velma herself was chairman. 

Julie Roper, Photographic Editor, and the Waid 
candid photographer spent the year covering all 
college events. Candids were cropped, plates made, 
proofs began to come in. Pat Washer and her art 
staff supplied sketches and lettering. 

Nancy Shaw, Literary Editor, and the writing 
staff wore out typewriter ribbons, and Associate 
Editor Maudie Andrews fitted copy. 

Between deadlines, the staff set aside February 
1 6 to 21 as Mic Week. The Publicity Editor ar- 
ranged attractive displays in the bookstore window 
and the library showcase, depicting the changes 
that have taken place in Mic during the past forty 

Proofs began to return the following month, 
when Annette Abrams, Technical Editor, and her 
staff of proofreaders took over for the last big lap. 
Then it was a matter of only a few weeks before 
Mic was at the printers.

At step-singing in the fall and Pops in the spring, 
Simmons girls have always proved themselves able 
in the vocal department. The Glee Club provides 
an opportunity for students to take part in public 
performances throughout the school year. 

The club was founded in 1908 by twenty-four 
girls, and with the Mandolin Club, formed the 
Musical Association. Glee Club is one of the oldest 
musical organizations at Simmons, and now boasts 
an all-time high membership of one hundred girls. 

The Glee Club functions under the expert musi- 
cal instruction of Mr. Wilmer T. Bartholomew, and 
has enjoyed a successful year under his direction. A 
Christmas concert was held at Fargo Building on 
December 15, the traditional vesper service at St. 
Paul's Church in Brookline. Meridythe Barker, '49, 
Gloria Clark, '51, Jane Nichols, '50, and Patricia 
Powers, '50, were featured soloists at both concerts. 
In the spring, the Simmons organization blended 
voices with the deep tones of the Harvard and Tech 
Glee Clubs. In addition, the club took part in the 
Commencement and Baccalaureate exercises.

Four-ten ... sweet music floats from the audi- 
torium. What is it? TheSimmonsaires, of course, the 
student orchestra under the professional direction 
of Mr. Sayrd Emerson Stone. 

The Simmonsaires is a comparatively new organ- 
ization here at Simmons. The group made its first 
appearance at a Student Government assembly 
rally on March 17, 1944, and appeared again the 
same night at Competitives. In the four years since, 
the orchestra has taken an active part in both stu- 
dent and faculty events. 

The twelve members of the Simmonsaires hope 
to encourage added interest and participation on 
the part of everyone under the Simmons roof who 
has musical ability. The orchestra's specialties this 
year included the "Andante" from Haydn's Sur- 
prise Symphony and Schubert's "March Militaire." 

This group supplied the music at Competitives 
in the fall, and played Christmas carols at Olde 
English Dinner in December. The Simmonsaires 
were further honored by invitations to play at 
Nurses' Capping and at President's Reception.

The Young Women's Christian Association at 
Simmons is an organization with a dual purpose. 
It is united in the desire to realize a full and crea- 
tive life through a growing knowledge of God; it is 
united in its aim toward improving student-faculty 
relations through club activities. 

The activities of the "Y" during the past year 
placed an increased emphasis on active member- 
ship through committee work. The club concen- 
trated on inter-faith projects in cooperation with 
other religious clubs at Simmons and other colleges. 

The eighty-four members of the club organized 
dances, sports, parties, suppers, and meetings. A 
"get acquainted with the Y" party was held in the 
fall and featured a tour of the Y.W. for new mem- 
bers. Early in the year, Mrs. Clifton Wharton was 
guest speaker at a buffet supper. In December, a 
dance was held in cooperation with C.L.A. of Bos- 
ton University. A Christmas party, complete with 
gifts, tree, and games, was given at a nearby settle- 
ment house and highlighted holiday activities of the 
club. A series of discussions, speakers, and inter- 
views added flavor to meetings throughout the 


Hiking, biking, and rock-climbing — bywords of 
Outing Club girls. Only those with strong consti- 
tutions and a surplus of vim need apply for mem- 
bership in this popular organization at Simmons. 

At monthly meetings in the lounge, the trips- 
dix-ector informed club members of plans for coming 
events, such as dances, trips, and get-togethers with 
surrounding colleges. 

At their first active meeting in the fall, club mem- 
bers hiked around the Blue Hills, and then met at 
the top of Big Blue for supper and a song-fest with 
other college clubs. 

An overnight bike trip to the Youth Hostel at 
Harvard, Mass., took place in October, with M.I.T. 
boys going along for the ride. 

Jaffrey, New Hampshire, was a week-end para- 
dise for winter sports fans when Outing Club mem- 
bers enjoyed skiing, ice-skating, sleigh-riding, and 
tobogganing there on March 5 to 7. 

Although the club's principal aim is to promote 
interest in the out-of-doors, some Outing Clubbers 
preferred to release their energy in activities in- 
doors. As a result, square dances were held in con- 
junction with men's colleges.

A small but energetic group of mademoiselles 
have been working to further the appreciation of 
French culture and to promote fellowship. 

Le Cercle Francais Inter-Universitaire has been 
providing more and more opportunities for the 
expansion of the club's interests into broader social 
and cultural fields. This intercollegiate organiza- 
tion combines social activity with relief work. At the 
same time, it enables college students who are in- 
terested in France to meet, work together, and ex- 
change ideas. Lucie Cottle, '48, was elected CFIU 
representative from Simmons this year. 

On November 9, club members attended a social 
at the University of Massachusetts, Fort Devens. 
In the fall, members enjoyed a prevue showing of 
Nais at the Old South Theater. 

Regular club meetings throughout the year pro- 
vided excellent chances for members to practice 
their abilities in conversational French. A business 
meeting, a Christmas party, a town meeting with 
M.I.T., and a talk and slides by Mr. Paul Kann of 
the French Department show the diversity of in- 
terest in the activities of Le Cercle Francais during 
the past year. 


Saludos Amigos! The Pan-American Club is for 
those interested in our colorful neighbors to the 
South. The club gives its members a better under- 
standing of Latin America and promotes co-opera- 
tion and friendship among the Americas. 

The past year was a busy one for the sixty Pan- 
Americans. Speakers representing various Latin 
American countries, as well as talented musicians 
and entertainers, were featured at the monthly 
meetings in the lounge. In December, a colorful 
Christmas party was held featuring Spanish carol- 
ing. Pan-American members were guests of Har- 
vard's El Club Espanol over at Phillips Brooks 
House for a Christmas Tertulia which featured 
dancing, refreshments, and a Mexican grab bag. 

In February, members were invited to a Valen- 
tine party of the Pan-American Society of New- 
England at Society headquarters on Newbury 

A "Spring Fiesta" highlighted the second semes- 
ter at which the club played host to students from 
local colleges at a colorful dancing party. The Latin 
American Orchestra, made up of young men from 
Latin American countries, supplied the music.

As soon as the first duck returns to Muddy River, 
Sally knows that spring has come at last, and ven- 
tures outside to enjoy the beauties of nature. 

The backyard is most famous for Field Day. For 
weeks in advance of the great day, committees put 
their heads together to make plans for the big event. 
Overnight, the backyard is transformed as if by 
magic into a fair grounds. Club members serve up 
hotdogs, coke, and ice cream from gaily decorated 

The cry "play ball" signals the crowd that the 
big event is on. Faculty in lumberjack shirts vie 
with the student baseball team in a fight to the 
finish, as rooters flock to the diamond. Boos and 
cheers resound when a heretofore dignified profes- 
sor slides into homeplate with mustard on his chin. 

After the game, all classes compete in a tug-of- 
war, and sack and suitcase races. At sunset, weary 
winners and losers storm the food tables, then sit 
down on the grass for a picnic supper. 

Besides setting the scene for Field Day fun, the 
backyard provides recreation the year round. In 
spring and fall, students find the benches and the 
backsteps a pleasant spot for study or chats between 
classes. Mr. Rankin is always deep in conversation 
there with the smokers, while others just soak up the 
sun. Tennis and archery enthusiasts shout across 
the grass, and the lawn-mower whirs by with 
Jimmy in the saddle. 

Inside, too, are favorite spots for recreation. 
After class is over, Sally's first stop is the noteboard 
where she may find a note from Suzie, possibly a 


9t ¥ 4> a w-ande/ifful hy& 

letter from home, or a white card from Library A. 

She proceeds to her class bulletin board, which 
keeps her informed of approaching events and class 
meetings. On her way past the blackboard, she is 
startled when she learns that "English 20 will meet 
today." This calls for more energy which is supplied 
by an "O Henry" from Show Case. Since the 
lounge is right next door, she can't resist dropping 
in to say "hi" to her colleagues. Some are enjoying 
the privacy of an easy chair, while the more rugged 
sit cross-legged on the floor, there to discuss the un- 
certain state of men and nations. 

Sally goes out to Hall Table where voting is 
in full swing, prom and theater tickets are being 
sold, and budget payments received for Sally's

favorite book — Microcosm, the book of the year. 

To escape the hurly-burly of the upper levels, 
Sally descends to the lower depths and enters 
notorious Room 052A. Bridge addicts are ob- 
scured by the butt fiends' smoke screen as Sally- 
lights up a Camel. 

Her natural craving for good food is gratified in 
the cafeteria. Sally remembers the fun she had here 
at Bib Party and bridge tournaments. 

Up in the gym, Mrs. Josephine Chapman, As- 
sistant Professor of Physical Education, gives Sally- 
valuable tips on how to lose those extra pounds. 
Posture and conditioning, basketball, badminton, 
modern dance, and fencing keep her in trim the 
year round.

Happy hours on campus plus hectic hours on the 
Met add up to the total time which dorm and com- 
muter students spend after class is over. 

Brookline Avenue campus is home to the dorm 
students. Within this colony, made up of shady 
lawns, residence halls, and cozy rooms, a valuable 
experiment in living together is being carried on 
every day. 

Afternoon teas and informal gatherings have 
helped to make Evans a popular place for all. Sen- 
iors garbed in weird apparel invade Evans Game 
Room once a year for their traditional Hobo Party. 
Each night students drop in for ping-pong, bridge, 
or a gab fest. 

Gathered around the colonnade for step-singing, 
dorm and commuter voices blend as they sing of 
their college, and class serenades class. 

Pet hangouts of dorm students have come to be

coffee at Jimmy's or cokes at the Drug, it's all a 
part of education "there."

itself. Buses and street cars offer supplementary 
courses to Simmons students, at the modest tuition 
rate of twenty cents per day. 

All strap-hangers major in Physical Fitness, a

uses the trial and error principle long enough, the 
Met guarantees that at the end of her fourth year at 


tU M. 1. A. 

All points to Park Street 

Simmons, she will be able to estimate to within one 
inch of platform just where the door of the first 
trolley will open. 

Human Relations is an elective for upperclass- 
men, a requirement for all freshmen. Under real- 
istic conditions, students learn to smile sweetly at 
toe-treading fellow passengers. 

The Met gives a course in indoor advertising in 
affiliation with Simmons. Because there's usually no 
place else to look, commuters don't find it hard to 
stare at the trolley and bus ads. Unconsciously, 
they absorb fundamentals of layout, copywriting, 
and high pressure salesmanship. 

Commuters of the Huntington Avenue line 
proudly announce a new find this year. To Sharaf 's 
and Howard Johnson's has been added the name 
of the Toddle House. Here, in the shadow of the 
fire station, it is rumored one may buy the world's 
best cheeseburger for a very reasonable sum. 


Gracious greeters 

From September to June, Sally takes advantage 
of Bostontown and its many accommodations for 
merrymaking. Dancing to smooth music is her pet 
pastime, so she joins her classmates in hotel ball- 
rooms around the town for Mic, News Dance and 
her class prom. 

Ever-hungry Sally has the inside dope on Bos- 
ton's eating places. She is familiar with Durgin- 
Park after dark and Chinatown after proms. 

It's only five minutes by trolley to Symphony 
Hall, where Sally enjoys Pops or hears regularly 
scheduled concerts by Boston Symphony. If she 
happens to be a jazz fiend, she taps her foot to the 
rhythms of Sabby Lewis down at the Savoy on 
Huntington Avenue. 

On quiet Sunday afternoons, aesthetic Sally finds 
peace of mind in the Museum of Fine Arts, just 
across the Fenway. 

But Sally's roving is not confined to the city of 
Boston. She keeps the trains, planes, and buses 
humming all year, as she runs down to Annapolis 
for a dance or up to Dartmouth for skiing.

During warm evenings of the fall and spring, 
students gathered once a week to carry on one of 
Simmons' oldest and dearest traditions — step- 
singing. Seniors occupied the place of honor on the 
colonnade until Class Day, when the steps were 
passed on to the Class of '49. 

The Lord and Lady of the medieval manor pre- 
sided over the festive board at Olde English Dinner 
in December. Budding Bernhardts held the spot- 
light at Competitives on December 5, and the silver 
loving cup was awarded to the juniors for the best 
performance. At Christmas Pageant, Priscilla 
White, most beautiful senior, played the part of the 

A tradition close to everyone's heart is Simmons 
Night at Pops. At reserved tables in Symphony 
Hall, students and faculty sipped claret punch and 
listened to their favorite selections. 

The juniors, armed with pillowcases and scissors 
invaded meadows near and far to pick daisies for 
the chain they carried on that traditional day of all 
days — Commencement. 

Christmas Pageant 




he four classes at Simmons realize 
the similarity of their aims. Juniors guide freshmen; 
seniors and their sophomore sisters cooperate in work 
and play. 

Simmons is going to have greater facilities for ac- 
commodating all classes. The new buildings are no 
longer a dream. They have become very real to us 
during the past months. We see the Science Building 
as part of the plans for providing future classes with 
enlarged opportunities for a better education. 


In September, Simmons opened 
its doors to 317 freshmen. For three 
bewildering days, the newcomers 
underwent a somewhat painful 
process called "Orientation." But 
the Junior Welcome Committee 
relieved the burden with informal 
parties after school hours. 

Soon the freshmen were caught 
up in the busy routine of college 
life. Early in the fall, they were in- 
troduced to their future profs at a 
formal reception in the Refectory. 

On November 6, juniors enter- 
tained their sister class at the 
Freshman-.Junior Bib Party. After 
songs and refreshments, there was 
the traditional mad scramble for 
autographs. Josephine Maillet, '51, 
was pronounced the winner for 
having the most names on her bib. 
Next month, on December 5, the 
freshmen cut ghoulish figures at 
Competitives in The Ghost in the 
Green Goivn. 

At a dinner on campus, Marjorie 
Clock was announced president of 
the class. Ellen Manning, junior 
vice-president, pinned corsages on 
the shoulders of the new officers. 

Freshmen were guests of the 
sophs in February, at a gay Valen- 
tine party in the cafeteria. And 
their big night came on April 9, 
when they danced at the Parker 
House Roof, at their first class 
prom. 'Nuf said.

Sophs and their pink elephant 
have proved they know the ropes hy 
now. Being old hands at this col- 
lege deal, they neatly divided their 
time between study and fun. 

In the fall they presented [he 
sophomore play When the Whirl- 
wind Blows at Competitives. 

At a Valentine Party on Febru- 
ary 10, they played hostess to the 
freshmen on a Valentine cruise. 
The sophs revealed some hereto- 
fore hidden talent when they kept 
their guests entertained with skits. 

Sophs shuffled and shone at their 
class dance on March 6, in the 
Crystal Ballroom of the Kenmore. 

One early May morning, they 
staged a mass invasion of senior 
dormitories. They sang until their 
sister class had been properly 
aroused from peaceful slumber. 
Afterwards, out on the green, the 
soph class president crowned the 
Queen of the May and gay dances 
whirled around the Maypole. And 
last but not least came the piece de 
resistance — a feast of delectable 
strawberry shortcake. 

The Sophomore Luncheon in the 
spring marked the half-way point 
in the college career of the Class of 
1950. They prepared to take over 
their responsibilities as members 
of the Junior Welcome Committee.

• Cheers and chess 



Dopey, the junior class mascot, 
grinned an angelic grin and spread 
the welcome mat to the incoming 
freshman class during Orientation 
Week. As host of the Junior Wel- 
come Committee, he introduced 
the newest Simmons students to 
their future alma mater. 

A shiny class ring of standard- 
ized style and design had that new 
look on Dopey's finger in October. 
At Competitives, a proud Dopey, 
silver loving cup in hand, bowed 
and smiled over the footlights to a 
capacity audience. For he had won 
first prize for the junior play, The 
Purple Door-Knob, directed by 
M. J. Mahoney. 

Donning his best big and tucker, 
he escorted his freshman sister to 
the Bib Party where he assures us 
"a good time was had by all." He 
dressed in his white tie and tails 
for Junior Prom at the Somerset on 
February 27. 

Dopey's nose got sunburned as he 
and his crew of 49Vrs picked daisies 
out in the country one day in early- 
June. Over on campus, he sat in the 
grass and wove the flowers into a 
chain. This chain he carried on 
Class Day, June 5. On Graduation 
Day, he ushered out the Class of 
'48, and looked ahead to Septem- 
ber when he would become a senior.

Officers: V. Johnson, N. Worth, M. Drake, president; A. Merrill 

September 1944, and we were 
freshmen at Simmons. Those were 
the days when gym, College Op, 
and English 10 were requirements 
in our course of study. 

We felt the effects of the war, too. 
Our men were rationed, and we 
stood for hours in line outside the 
bookstore waiting to turn in our 
empty package of Rameses number 

That fall, Mrs. Roosevelt was 
guest at an assembly, and our war 
fund goal was set at $2800. 1944 was 
a presidential election year, too. 
We elected Thomas E. Dewey presi- 
dent at a college election. 

We got our first real taste of the 
college social whirl at MIC Dance 
in November, when we prome- 
naded sedately with our soldiers 
and sailors at the Hotel Statler. 
We elected Pepper Mainwaring our 
class president on November 17. 

Meantime we were knitting for 
the Red Cross, for Britain, and 
France, and we bought Russian 
relief articles in the bookstore. 
When we weren't taking notes 

Horse- play 




• J. Kosenbaeh, sophisticated lady 

• Tally, and that smile! No wonder 
she's popidar. Most energetic, 

• Midge Klein in a picture of charm 


from Wallhank and Taylor, we read 
Earth anil High Heaven and 
went to a matinee of Dark of the 
Moon at the Shubert. 

At an election we made our mas- 
cot a frisky colt, and at the Fresh- 
man Formal in May, we met Frisky 
for the first lime. 

One of our classmates, Maude 
Morris, attended the San Francisco 
Conference, as secretary to the Li- 
berian delegation. At last, on May 
10, part of the war was over. We 
didn't celebrate much, but we lis- 
tened to news broadcasts and to 
speeches in the Lounge, and then 
returned to our morning classes. 

That summer we learned that the 
Japanese war was over, too. In Sep- 
tember, the first male veterans en- 
rolled at Simmons. How we laughed 
about that cartoon by Bob Coyne 
in the Boston Post. 

We had a big weekend at the end 
of April, including a play and sup- 
per, open house at our Saturday 
classes, and News Danee on Satur- 
day night. Our Soph Shuffle cre- 
ated a big bang at the Commander,

loo. Remember those balloon dec- 
orations that kept breaking all 
through the dance? We finished 
our sophomore year, knowing that 
the fall would bring with it an end 
to our days of dabbling in the lib- 
eral arts. 

When we came back in Septem- 
ber, we heard for the first time 
about the Fiftieth Anniversary Ap- 
peal. We learned, too, that Jane 
Bergwall was to have the leading 
role in the Harvard Urania Club's 
play — the first woman to be so hon- 
ored. Pat Murphy was elected 
attend the N.S.O. meeting at 
Smith, and Jackie Trapp was elect- 
ed editor of the Simmons News. 
Mary Kerr and Midge Klein repre- 
sented Simmons at the Conference 
of American College Students in 

Cur junior year was crowded with 
studying and our various club 
meetings. We braved a raging bliz- 
zard to get to our Junior Prom at 
the Somerset Hotel. It was our first 
college dinner dance, and we all 
received silver bracelets just for 
being juniors. 

At the May Party, Stocksy was 
elected Stu-G president. We picked 
daisies for the chain, and we usher- 
ed at graduation and at President's 
Reception. When we left, we knew 

that next year would lie our last 
chance to take advantage of all 

Simmons offers. 

he lirsl week of senior year, it 
was hot Indian summer, hut we 
didn't mind. We paraded in our 
caps and frowns just the same. We 
raised eain at the Hobo I'arty at 
Evans, and were a picture of senior 
sophistication at our prom at the 
Somerset. We neglected our study- 
ing to read Raintree County. 
Our last big whirl began with Sen- 
ior-Faculty Supper in April. Then 
came last-minute cramming, those 
final finals, and Class Day arrived. 
We entertained our parents, and 
next day introduced them to Presi- 
dent Beallcy at the reception fol- 
lowing Baccalaureate. On Monday 
we donned our eaps and gowns for 
the last time to receive our degrees. 
Now that it's all over, we find our- 
selves looking haekward, and feel- 
ing a bit nostalgic for those brief 
years. We'll always remember Sim- 
mons as it was then. But now, in a 
more practical frame of mind, 
we're thinking, too, of the students 
of the future. To them we wish 
great happiness in this "new Sim- 
mons" — a college which we hope 
will always treasure past memories 
of us — the Class of ' 18.

9ii a a&itam at BimnumA, . . . 


Chinese food and good cheer are Yuey's special- 
ties. Sally goes there for coffee and snacks, 
and a pleasant interval between classes. What 
could be finer than relaxing to the music 
of Yuey's super juke-box, and maybe eating 
some of that chicken chow mein or egg foo yong? 
The sandwiches are good, too, and the atmos- 
phere is always inviting. 


Sally takes her watch to the jewelry store, at 
the corner of Huntington and Longwood for 
prompt repair service. She can have minor re- 
pairs made while she inspects their fine line 

of Hamilton, Waltham, and Elgin watches. She 
doesn't have to go downtown to buy that 
shower or birthday gift when Thomasian's has 
Elgin compacts, Deltah Pearls, R.C.A. Victor 
Radios, and a hundred other fine products. 


This is where Sally picks up her paper in the 
morning, and buys her stamps late at night. 
It's a popular spot, good for a snack or a bull- 
session, even for cramming. The booths are 
always full. Sally can get her cosmetics here, or 
buy the latest magazines. Stationery, coke, and 
candy change hands while the Simmons girls 
chat over that good coffee.

150th Anniversary 

As early as 1798 Messrs. Ames and Parker had set up a 
printing press in Andover. Enlarged during the early years of 
the nineteenth century through the enterprise of Dr. Eliphalet 
Pearson, the first principal of Phillips Academy, Andover, 
which had been established 20 years earlier, the press became 
widely known throughout the United States and many foreign 
countries through the publications printed for Harvard Univer- 
sity and the Andover Theological Seminary. 

The present Andover Press, building on noble traditions, is 
today perhaps the best-known school and college print shop in 
New England. Proud of a glorious past, but not satisfied to rest 
on its laurels, the press has kept pace with the times by enlarging 
its plant and adding modern equipment in all departments. 

In its one hundred and fiftieth year, the Andover Press, Ltd., 

is proud to number among its publications 

the 1948 MICROCOSM.

year 1947- 1948, edited by the undergraduates,

teen-page signatures. The volume was com- 
pleted and distributed in May, 1948.
